Wincanton has won a three-year contract renewal with Wickes to provide home delivery of heavier items to customers across the UK.
The contract will mean that Wincanton will continue to deliver Wickes’ heavier items such as sandbags and plasterboard that require lifting through truck-mounted cranes to homes and trade customers using its own fleet and subcontractors.
Wincanton will continue to oversee the management of vehicles and drivers across the UK to optimise delivery routes.
Wickes and Wincanton were awarded the ‘DP World Award for Retail Innovation’ at the Supply Chain Excellence awards on 5 November 2019.
Paul Durkin, director of home and eFulfilment at Wincanton, said: “The opportunity to continue our award-winning relationship with Wickes is an exciting one.
“We have worked over the last three years to evolve Wickes’ delivery solution and we will continue to build on these developments over the next three years, with a route map of further developments already in place.”
Mike Mills, director of customer fulfilment at Wickes, said: “Wincanton have delivered fantastic results in all key areas such as safety, cost management and customer service. Our recent industry award win and this contract renewal underlines these achievements.”
